During a recent episode of his ‘One Of A Kind’ podcast, 2021 WWE Hall of Famer Rob Van Dam explained why he does not think he would be a good agent or trainer.

Here’s what the former WWE Champion said:

“When I think of the agents, and I don’t mean to insult any, but just from, subjective to my views being there, it was the kind of job that, to me, as talent, they looked kind of like stooges.

And that’s because they seemed afraid for their job and wanted to make the right calls, and hoping the matches they got assigned to were the better matches of the night, which is also subjective.

They wanted to make Vince McMahon happy and wanted to be on the winning side of any debate. So I don’t know if I would, outside of that, it could be a real important job.

I don’t think I’ve got the patience to be a trainer. I could tell somebody one or two times, and then I said it, and I’m like ‘Dude, I told you not to do that. Why do you keep doing that? I’m done’.

I’m banging my head on a wall. And I hurt people when I’m training them. So I don’t know.”

After working for Paul Heyman’s ECW from 1996 until it closed its doors in January 2001, RVD joined the World Wrestling Federation a few months later and became a household name and even a main eventer, several years before winning the WWE Championship in 2006.

Mr. Monday Night stayed with WWE until 2007, then wrestled for Dixie Carter’s Total Nonstop Action! (TNA) from 2010 to 2013 and returned to WWE for a 2nd run (2013-2014) with the company.

He returned to IMPACT Wrestling (fka TNA) for another run (2019-2020) and is now a free-agent, but recently told NBC Sports that he’d actually be happy to return to WWE.
